Websites with Great Design Developers for Your Business

As you well may know, creating websites can be nothing short of intimidating.

It can take a few weeks for even a few months to get it done right. Learning all about how to build great websites can take years, as it was in my case.

Over the years I have learned quite a lot about creating websites. I learned all on my own, taking many courses and can put together almost any type of site or blog.  Here are some Experts that I follow in the field of Website Design and Developers to give you some ideas on what you can do yourself or have me help you out.

  1. Hi Kathryn,

    Thanks so much for sharing these wonderful folks. When it comes to website building, I leave it up to others. This is one learning curve I don’t have time for. However, I do love to eat up all the information I can so I can convey to another how I want my website to look. How I want it to download etc.
    I am so lucky to have a blogging buddy like you who is so knowledgeable.

      Hi Donna,
      Thanks, Donna, we all have what we love about blogging. You write so very well. Love your blog posts. I, on the other hand, love creating sites and images. Writing is something I learned how to do just to go along with them. Every one has there own ideas as I have pointed out in my article about these very different design developers. I love being your blogging buddy! Thanks for your warm comments.

  2. Hey Kathryn!

    It is super duper important that people work on their blog’s design. I can’t address this enough. I often see blogs with bad UX (user-experience) and that affects the blog conversions.

    I would highly recommend the new blogger to hire a professional developer to craft that niche blog you really need.

    Thank you for sharing these!

    Best regards! 😀

      Hi Freddy,
      Hiring a developer is important. It’s hiring the right one for you that is super duper important. That is why I featured these bloggers so people can see the differences between them. Thanks for your comments.

  3. Hi Kathryn,
    it is true , it is a lot of work to design a website.
    I am happy to have a friend who does this for me.
    I did some as well and it has always to be improved.
    Good to have somebody professional which can do this time consuming job.
    Good you shared who can help with this.
    Thank you

    • Hi Erika,
      Yes, it is indeed a time-consuming job to design a great website. You and I have done it and so we are well aware of how much work it can be.
      It is great to find these professionals and to be friends with them over time. They all are excellent designers and business managers.
      Thanks so much for your kind comments and for sharing this article as well. I appreciate it!

  4. Hi Kathryn,
    My daughter wants me to change my theme; my tech helper wants me to change my theme. I’m happy, so no change.

    • Hi Janice,
      As it is your business and you are currently happy with the theme, that’s fine.
      Should you change your mind you might seek one of these people I mentioned in my article for some advice.
      If you like, you can contact me and I can speak to any of them on your behalf, anytime.

  5. Hi, Kathrynruth mam, Great tips it will be helpful to all bloggers. thanks for sharing.

    • Hi Sazia,
      Bloggers do need to know at least the basics of setting up a website before the professional designer and developers set it up.
      You are right. I hope I am helping other bloggers with this article. Thanks for your comments.

  6. Hi, Thanks for this post. Donna is right it is a learning curve. I’m in the middle of a new project and changed to a new theme, it’s completely different from what I’m used to!

    • Hi Dexter,
      Getting familiar with a new theme can be daunting. Even just the WordPress Updates every little while are hard to get used to sometimes. It’s all a learning curve. Thanks for your comment.

  7. Hi Kathryn,

    Thanks for including info on the webinar here on your blog. I’m so happy to see a great blogging community here! Keep up the great work!

    Hope to cross digital paths again in the future 🙂

  8. Hi Kathryn,

    Great article on some truly inspirational people! Like you I’ve taken the long road on website design and blogging. There is a definite need to know this many different aspects in marketing a business online effectively. You have the programming and design side, the graphic content, the SEO and email marketing, social media management and on goes the list! Learning everything there is to design an effective website is arduous and time consuming at best. Learning from those that have gone before us is the only way. I’m sure these resources will help many people!

    Kind Regards
